How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?

Mechanic with Tires

 

Wondering how often you should rotate your tires? As a general rule of thumb, tire rotations should be conducted every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. However, you should refer to your INFINITI’s owner’s manual for exact tire rotation intervals for your specific model. Still have questions about how often you should rotate your tires and how to do so? Take a look at these easy instructions from the service experts at INFINITI Stuart. 

How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires on a FWD or RWD Vehicle?

The designations of front-wheel and rear-wheel drive simply refer to where power from the engine is directed. For a front-wheel-drive car, it is sent to the front tires, while in a rear-wheel-drive car it is sent to the rear tires. This means the set of tires getting the bulk of the engine power will wear at a faster rate than the others. Should you drive an RWD or FWD vehicle, remember these important tire rotation tips:

  • Tire rotations need to be performed every 5,000 to 7,000 miles for FWD or RWD cars, however, you should consult your owner’s manual for more specific figures. 
  • Remember to flip sides when moving the rear tires during a DIY FWD tire rotation. For example, the rear right tire will go on the front left, however, when moving the front tires to the back, be sure to keep them on the same side. 
  • If you’re rotating tires on an RWD vehicle, invert the process mentioned above. Flip sides when moving the front tires to the back and keep the rear tires on the same side when moving them forward.
  • Your driving habits, location, and frequency will have a significant impact on how often you should rotate your tires. Consult with service technicians like the ones at INFINITI Stuart to ascertain a firmer understanding of the best maintenance schedule for your driving situation. 

How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires for an AWD Vehicle?

If you have an all-wheel-drive (AWD) INFINITI model, then your vehicle will have a different tire rotation interval than RWD or FWD vehicles. Since the power from your engine is being directed to every wheel when you engage AWD, the rotation will need to be done in closer intervals. Most AWD tires need to be rotated every 3,000 to 5,000 miles if you use AWD regularly during your Port Saint Lucie drives. Be sure to follow these tips closely if you’re rotating your tires from your Jupiter home:

  1. The left rear goes to the right front spot.
  2. The right rear goes to the left front spot.
  3. The right front goes to the left rear spot.
  4. The left front goes to the right rear spot.

We recommend drawing a simple diagram of your drivetrain and using color-coded arrows to help you move your tires properly. If you prefer to have a professional team rotate your tires, you simply have to schedule a service appointment online and we’ll take care of the rest! 

Why Is Tire Rotation Important?

Knowing how often you should rotate your tires is only half the battle. It’s equally important to understand why you should regularly rotate your tires. Not only does tire rotation extend the lifespan of your tires, but there’s a variety of other benefits as well:

  • Improved traction on slippery roads
  • Less noise on the road
  • Relieves unnecessary stress on the drivetrain

Keeping tire rotations as part of your routine maintenance plan improves your safety during hazardous seasonal weather around the Jupiter region. If you’re in need of a replacement, the tires offered at INFINITI Stuart are affordable and some of the best on the market!
